Philippines Islands West: Amazing 10-day Group Backpacking Philippines Holiday Tour


Explore the vibrant nightlife of Manila, marvel at the Palawan Underground River, splash in jungle waterfalls and spend a night camping on a remote beach!

From the planning to the execution, let us maximize your Philippines vacation!

The Philippines and its more than 7000 islands makes this the 2nd largest archipelago in the world. What does that mean for you? Endless opportunities for exploration to exotic hot spots scattered everywhere. Our Philippines Islands West tour takes you to the best locations on the island of Palawan. This location has so many incredible areas to it that we had to dedicate an entire to it. 

You'll have the ability to snorkel/dive (YES with Whale Sharks), island hop until you drop and rock out at beach parties until the wee hours. Grab your backpack and let us take you on the adventure of a lifetime. 

Looking to extend your Philippines holiday? Check out our Philippines Voyage 20-day tour that combines this tour with our Philippines Islands East adventure!
